NRG knock out Virtus.pro; advance to semis in Malta

NRG have booked their place in the SuperNova CS:GO Malta playoffs after defeating Virtus.pro 2-0 in the Group A decider (16-11 on Inferno and 16-7 on Cache).

The best-of-three game started on Inferno where the T-sided Virtus.pro won a 2vs5 in the pistol round as Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski got a quad kill. NRG answered back in the fourth and fifth rounds, trailing 3-2.

NRG managed to tie the game three times and took the lead in the 13th round when they won a 3vs3 retake. The North American side followed that up by taking the last two rounds of the half and led 9-6 at halftime.

NRG will face HellRaisers in the semis

NRG had a thunderous start to the second half as they secured the first three rounds while only losing four players in total. Tsvetelin "CeRq" Dimitrov & company earned seven match points after picking up the victory in the 23rd round and went on to close out the map 16-11.

NRG started Cache on the T-side and took the pistol round victory. The North American side lost the fourth round but responded immediately by clutching a 2vs3 to lead 4-1. Filip "NEO" Kubski got a quad kill in the eighth round to start a four round Virtus.pro streak (6-5).

VP finished in 5-6th place

CeRq and Ethan "Ethan" Arnold clutched a 2vs4 in the 12th round to stop Virtus.pro's momentum. After finishing the first half 10-5 ahead, NRG won the second pistol thanks to Ethan's triple kill and extended their lead to 13-5 by securing the next two rounds.

Michał "MICHU" Müller picked up quad and double kills in consecutive rounds to give Virtus.pro a fighting chance but NRG took the 16-7 map victory, winning the series 2-0 and becoming HellRaisers' opponents in the semi-finals.

Certainly not the best, but i guess the best free agent? Or players from other orgs didnt want to join.. still he compensates with his impact for the low scores, but thats just above the bare minimum.. not a carry capacity, low clutching

"wasted spot" Challenged 2 top 10 teams. Beat another top 30 team. Played in quarter finals.

They didnt take a map off of either of the top 10 teams

But they took double digits from both. Somebody has to lose and they certainly have not went down without a fight like in many tournaments in first half of this year.
2018-11-30 20:11
They challenged them. Doesn't mean they have to take a map. Plenty of teams you'd consider fine get 2-0d in this fashion where they still challenge the other team.

Snax is washed up toxic asshole which destroyed VP legendary roster. Byali has great aim but he's retarded player with no brain. He has never won a smart clutch or tricked enemies. He's completely incapable of playing tier 1 in current meta due to that. Morelz will recover. He's a great player just without any real experience. They need to replace pasha. He has solid aim but he clearly can't find the role for himself after Snatchie took over AWPing and he's even dumber than byali when it comes to game sense, movement and stuff.
2018-11-30 20:15
this is what you get when you got two bots like neo and morelz
